First aid & Remote travel kit – Contents

This is our starting point, and like most of the items in the van is evolving and will change as we learn more.

     Precautionary items.
     Basic First Aid Kit.
     Remote Travel.
     Extended care.
     Small satellite First Aid Kit.

 

Items in the mauve are still on our wishlist (or under construction).
Most of the items here are in our larger caving first aid kit that we are currently using on trips with the van, however, we need to get a first aid kit permanently for the van, as the remote travel & extended care items required differ, or we don’t have them in the one we are using. The satellite small first aid kit is one of our small caving ones which we usually take for caving or walking so will probably be in the van as well on most of our trips.

Quite a few of the items have expiry dates so the kits will need monitoring.
Contents should be checked before any major trip, on a regular basis and restocked ASAP on use.
